Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Being Garcia

Another reason he was disgruntle with the touring, was , because of their popularity , they had to do the big Stadiums, or monster sports arenas . No the most musical environments in the world .
A friend of mine met him before a a show at Irvine ( He couldn't go to the show as he was playing a gig himself in the hotel, as it turns out, that the Garcai band was staying ) . They brought up the move to bigger venues ("too bad, no more small Jerry shows anymore "), and Garcia was not happy with this , and this was the mid 80's .
